    As the title says new here :)
    Have owned a number of Audi's over the years including A3's (Various) A4's (Again various) And a 100 if you are old enough to remember them?

    Last year bought a A3 (8L) 130 Sport TDI Facelift model which was a spares repairs car i saw potential in and has been with me ever since this is a ongoing project however is fixed and is my daily!

    Last week i took a punt on a A3 (8L Again) 1.8T Quattro sport facelift as a spares repairs (Suspected head gone) which i have managed to keep going for the moment on a bottle of steel seal.
    Sniff Tested it using a kit off ebay went green straight away a bottle of steel seal later no loss of heat through the heater lovely and hot and the sniff test staying blue not had any chance as such to take out due to the lurgi that is about at the moment but the brief drive i had it seems to be a bundle of fun.

    Currently in 2 minds about the 1.8T for what it owes me i may keep as a toy do the head properly and sort out the lacquer peel issues it has.

    Anyway thats me i'm Dan btw and based in Kent.

    steel seal ?
    Now I'm curious.... as just had rocker head gasket replaced on A4 (v6 ) could smell oil . It Then went back in and was told the other side was leaking
    ( again smelling oil ) had it back for 2 weeks to be back in to find it was the camshaft seals right at the back right against the bulk head ... has cost me a fortune. Tell me more about this steel seal... as never heard of it ..
